In the News: Praise for Khe-Yo

khe-yo••• Gael Greene liked Khe-Yo—which, FYI, doesn’t appear to be putting prime-time tables on OpenTable (you have to call). —Insatiable Critic

••• “The recently sold ‘1,620 sq ft’ Manhattan loft on the 3rd floor at 14 Jay Street is a rather recent sale (July 15) but it does not reflect the recent market: the deal that just closed was entered into last Fall (contract date is October 24). Well, it is kinda sorta like the current market, as it was a very quick contract (to market October 4) and it went above ask ($2.5mm, though asked $2.4mm), which is very much like the current market. But you can’t blame the current market for this one. This one is from the famously Sellers Market of late last year. Indeed, this loft was so beloved by that market that the seller could get away with insisting (as in the listing description) on a ‘June closing’ (which turned out to be July 15; but still).” —Manhattan Loft Guy

••• “The austere limestone-and-granite, first-floor facades of the former American Stock Exchange building will sport big, bright storefront windows if owner Allan Fried gets the nod from the city’s Landmarks Commission on Tuesday.” Windows would be an improvement, actually. —Tribeca Trib

••• Downtown Lunch says Jersey Mike’s on Maiden Lane is better than Subway and Blimpie. Faint praise?

••• If the Ghostbusters firehouse were for sale, how much might it go for? —Movoto (via Curbed)

••• Tribeca Pediatcics continues its efforts toward world domination with a Ditmas Park outpost. (That’s in Brooklyn.) —Ditmas Park Corner

••• “A new book is offering a inside look at the poignant personal artifacts that will go on display at the still-under-construction 9/11 Memorial and Museum.” —DNAinfo
